1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 packages (0.14 oz each) strawberry or lemon-lime-flavored unsweetened soft drink mix
1/2 cup frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate, thawed
Super Sour Frosting
1 package (0.13 oz or 0.14 oz) lemon-lime or strawberry-flavored unsweetened soft drink mix
4 to 5 tablespoons frozen lemonade or limeade concentrate, thawed
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
Sour gummi candies, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, eggs and 2 packages drink mix with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. (Batter will be lumpy.) Pour into pan.
2. Bake 27 to 33 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes.
3. Pierce top of warm cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking. Drizzle 1/2 cup lemonade concentrate evenly over top of cake. Cool completely, 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes.
4. In medium bowl, stir 1 package drink mix into 2 tablespoons lemonade concentrate until dissolved. Beat in powdered sugar and butter on low speed. Gradually beat in enough of the remaining 2 to 3 tablespoons lemonade concentrate, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Spread frosting over top of cake. Cut into serving pieces. Decorate with sour candies. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
